Climate x Change commissioned the James Hutton Institute to develop a free, easy-to-use tool to allow the measured organic matter and carbon content of topsoil to be compared to typical values for Scotland.

The tool is based on data accessed via the National Soils Map of Scotland and provides reference/context information for the average soil organic matter content at any site.

It aims to help land managers see quickly whether the soil has a good organic matter content, and alert them to the need for further action.

Find out more and access the tool on the James Hutton website.
